Tested Negative for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea a week after having unprotected sex with my ex. I was prompted to get tested after feeling slight irritation during urination...but since i tested negative, I though nothing of it. However, I'm currently suffering from a persistent sore throat, which seems to get worse after performing oral on my current girlfriend. This has been going on for atleast a month in a half. At first i thought it was irritation from me smoking, but I think I may have given her something that in turn keeps re-infecting me when performing oral sex.
I have no physical bumps or lesions on or around my genitals, and no discharge and nether does my girlfriend. But I still feel irritation, sometimes though very mild when urinating. And my throats is sore as we speak. Also after having unprotected sex with my ex (same time as mentioned above) a week or two later.... i caught a really bad sinus cold, which resulted in one of my eyes swelling up. Could this be symptoms of herpes/oral herpes...or some form of bacteria.
1.) With these symptoms what diseases could i have possibly contracted
2.) Is getting tested 5 days after exposure too soon? Could this give me a false negative test result?
3.) When i got tested my doctor mentioned other forms of bacteria i could have caught in a hot tub during vacationing. Is this possible?
If you are also having oral symptoms, like a sore throat, you need to have your throat cultured. Keep in mind, though, that most oral stds don't give symptoms, and certainly wouldn't cause sinus problems.
5 days is usually fine, but if you are concerned, test again.
Sure - all kinds of creepy ickies live in hot tubs.
I'm going to get re-tested, but I have to wait to my insurance kicks in after first of this year. However, I just wanted to reiterate some of my symptoms in a timeline, just to make sure i didn't leave anything out.

Between Late August - Mid September 3, 2008
- Had a very bad cold and sinus infection, resulting in my eye swelling up.
Infection lasted for several weeks Which I complicated by smoking cigarettes
Between August 11, 2008 - Mid October 2008
- Discovered every time I give oral to my girlfriend, the next day I have a sever sore throat which lasts for about a week. During the week sometimes I would get white patches in the back of my throat. This went on for quite some time before I discovered that the oral sex was causing the sore throat
Waiting to be retested
No discharge or bumps or lesions on genitals
I believe i contracted something that infected my girlfriend which in turn keep re-infecting me, including my throat and genitals.
1.) I tested 4 days after unprotected encounter, was this too soon for: Chlamydia, Gonorrhea and Trich?
2.) My girlfriend believed she had a yeast infection and took some over the counter medicine, and hasn't seen any symptoms since. This was in late September. Could my symptoms be from a yeast infection?
Especially since i have the recurring sore throat after oral sex.
3.) Does Herpes align with any of my symptoms?
I's been 4 1/2 months and I have not hand any breakouts of any sort
